car cake wreck - Page 2

I usually keep picking at things I do and am never satisified. I think you might not have built up the roof area enough. If you still want to mess with it, you could cut out the windshield and take out some of the cake directly in front of it from under the fondant. Then smooth that area back out. You can take the extra cake and make your windshield area more straight up and down. Replace the windshield. You might have to put some sort or small border around it. I think that might work. Or you could just leave it alone and know that you are giving your grandson a cake made with love. If we never try something different we'll never learn. Happy birthday to your grandson.

Thank you so much. He absolutely loved it, I was never so happy. I could not believe it when he said, wow thats cool, then he looked at his dad and said thats really cool isn't it......made my day.....especially since the poor kid has a virus for his birthday, and seeing the cake perked him u for a few minutes.............and of course the presents. I guess I will post a pic of him with his cake. Thanks everyone. I know I made many mistakes......and learned so much.

That's really sweet!
What a good boy.

What I was gonna say before you presented it and it became a huge hit, was--you could pinch the green together more where the windshield had momentarily appeared earlier and then just set another one to stand up there out of royal or fondant or even cellophane or plastic

Then stick in a couple seat tops--y'know how you see the tops of the driver's seat and the passenger seat sticking up a bit--I'm mean it's already a killer sports car--but that's how you coulda made another windshield--until the grandson fell in love with his Grandma's labor of love. Congrats! Job well done.

He is a good kid.............I mean he really acted like it was great.............maybe he will be an actor when he grows up LOL.........Its pretty bad......but you would think it was a masterpiece the way he reacted. I actually thought about turning it into a convertible haha........then I was thinking about building the flat windshield up with cake etc but I was afraid I would make it worse (hardly possible) and then put my fist in it hahahaha...................thanks your sweet.......and funny.....why don't you have a photos posted? k8memphis? I still can't believe I put that terrible car cake pic in here.............what a disaster............no one commented LOL.......I had a pic up with my grandson, but someone said thats not allowed and deleted it before I could delete it haha. hmmmmmmmmmm

You're funny! No -about the pictures --I don't want to go through any more technology--I have a website and on webshots there's a ton of albums plus photos on the home cpmputer--that's enough to wrestle with kwim.

Madge, not only did I want to see a photo of your grandson, but one of you. I always thought that young blonde in your avatar was you, then when you said you were making a car cake for your grandson, I almost fell off my chair!

I'm SO glad that he loved it, and I'm sure he wasn't just acting. I hope he feels better real soon.

I think the cake looks worse to you than anyone else. I am never happy with my cakes but my family and friends seem to like them.

Anyway, I have done very little carving but I have learned that I have to exaggerate the size and details a little or it will get lost when covered with the fondant. For example, your windshield and roof could probably have been cut higher to begin with so there would be more definition and more room for the windshield.

Keep decorating!

It is best to try things out for your family...now you can learn from those mistakes! I think it's great! There is no way I would be able to do that! icon_smile.gif

Yes I need to cut the windshield higher next time for sure, it looked even flatter when the thing fell. the support was not strong enough LOL...yes it had real working head and tail lights.....I think thats the part that grabbed my grandson ....the closer you get the worse it looks haha...I learned a mess of stuff from this thing.......thanks so much for all the comments......I have to laugh at 55 people looked at it so far and could not think of a thing to say hahahaha they were shocked into silence I think....I love it when people give me tips on what I did wrong.....thanks again
